Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

Visual Discrimination 

Visual Discrimination is the ability to identify differences and similarities between two or more visual stimuli by analysing their individual characteristics and distinctive features. Shapes exist throughout our environment, and an ability to identify common shapes is an important visual discrimination skill. 

In the “Colour by Shape” worksheets, the student must compare the features of similar looking shapes, for example, circle/oval or square/rectangle, in order to distinguish between them. 

Figure Ground 

Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration. 

In order to successfully scan for each shape in the “Colour by Shape” worksheets, the student must attend to one shape at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding shapes.
